What is Denial Code N700

Remark code N700 is an indication that the payment has been adjusted in accordance with the Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program.

Common Causes of RARC N700

Common causes of code N700 are incomplete or inaccurate documentation related to the Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program, failure to meet the specified criteria or thresholds for the EHR Incentive Program, and errors in the submission process of EHR Incentive Program documentation or attestation.

Ways to Mitigate Denial Code N700

Ways to mitigate code N700 include ensuring that your Electronic Health Records (EHR) system is up-to-date and fully compliant with the latest standards and requirements of the EHR Incentive Program. Regularly review and audit your EHR usage and reporting practices to ensure they align with the program's objectives. Engage in continuous staff training on the proper use of EHR technology and the specific documentation practices required to meet the incentive program's criteria. Additionally, implement a robust system for tracking and reporting the necessary measures to qualify for the incentive payments, and proactively address any discrepancies or issues identified during audits to prevent future adjustments.

How to Address Denial Code N700

The steps to address code N700 involve several key actions to ensure compliance and correct any discrepancies related to the Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program payment adjustments. First, verify the accuracy of the EHR Incentive Program participation status for the provider or practice in question. This includes confirming that all necessary attestations have been correctly submitted and that any required documentation is up to date and accurately reflects the practice's use of EHR technology.

Next, review the payment adjustment to determine if it aligns with the expected incentive or penalty based on the practice's reported EHR use. If discrepancies are found, prepare and compile all relevant documentation that supports the practice's case for a different payment adjustment. This documentation may include attestation records, EHR usage reports, and any correspondence related to the EHR Incentive Program.

Following this, submit a request for reconsideration or appeal to the appropriate body overseeing the EHR Incentive Program, attaching all supporting documentation. Ensure that this request clearly outlines why the current payment adjustment is believed to be incorrect and what adjustment is deemed appropriate based on the practice's EHR use.

Finally, monitor the status of the reconsideration or appeal request and be prepared to provide additional information or clarification as needed. Once a decision is made, take the necessary steps to implement any changes to the payment adjustment and update the practice's financial records accordingly. Additionally, use this experience as an opportunity to review and possibly enhance the practice's EHR usage and reporting processes to avoid similar issues in the future.
